The breathtaking 4* Ardanaiseig Hotel was named Intimate Wedding Hotel of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards in Edinburgh on Sunday.
Nestled in wooded gardens on the banks of Loch Awe, with Highland flora and wildlife in abundance, Ardanaiseig is undeniably the perfect setting for an idyllic, intimate wedding.
The 16-bedroom, baronial -hotel with stunning drawing room, relaxing bar and Scotland’s ‘Romantic Restaurant of the Year’, can be hired out in its entirety, making it an exclusive-use home-from-home for couples and their guests. Every room is individually designed and honeymooners are particularly fond of the private Boatshed Suite on the loch shore.
As well as a license to hold weddings and civil ceremonies in the bay windowed drawing room, couples can be married anywhere within the breathtaking grounds. A specially created amphitheatre by the loch makes for a particularly memorable ceremony.
According to Hotel Manager, Peter Webster, ‘Prospective wedding customers fall in love with Ardanaiseig the minute they arrive. It is hard to beat a baronial-style country house on the edge of Loch Awe, set against a backdrop of stunning Highland scenery. Add to that a taste of our gourmet dining, and it’s almost always a done deal right there and then ’
Awarded the prestigious Medaille D’Or for Dining Excellence (2010), Chef de Cuisine Gary Goldie is renowned for his gourmet five course meals, prepared using the very finest local and international ingredients. The wedding menu is always especially well-received, as evident in the visitor book and glowing reviews.
Guests are in particularly good hands with Hotel Manager (and winner of the prestigious Gold Medal for Management Excellence) Peter Webster, and dedicated Wedding Planner, Anita Goldie. First class service is guaranteed at all times. No restrictive packages, no conveyor belt ceremonies, just complete dedication to couples and their guests – before and during the big day.
As Anita points out ‘the award is particularly exciting at a time when more and more people are choosing smaller, more intimate weddings and civil ceremonies. Couples are keen to treat their closest family and friends to a memorable event in idyllic surroundings with gourmet dining and first class service, rather than make the compromises that larger events often require.’
Ardanaiseig’s commitment to making each and every wedding a resounding success certainly makes it a deserving winner of this prestigious award.
